We have been doing Clearlake here locally. Been taking some young'uns up for mainly big redears on worms. The kids are 6-10 yrs old and the redears generally run 7 1/2" - 11". While that is going on OCCASIONALLY we get to toss bugs at the crappie that are running 10"-15". Last w/e no kids and the crappie were VERY picky.....only got 12 late evening after changing lines and bugs for several hours midday. Folks were hammering BIG redears with the worms and when we tried (due to boredom), we would only sporadically connect with our flies, which seemed to need to be DEAD deep. Any tips and thoughts. I KNOW there are better redear chasers out there than we are. James Smith.....Rick......?
